Absolute Fresh Breath

Regular visits to a hygienist are the best way to help maintain good foundations for your teeth, in order to keep them for life.

At your hygiene appointments with Rachel, Christina or Janie, our aim is to remove any build up of plaque and tartar above and below the gum line, (this may take more than one visit), so that growth of harmful bacteria that causes gum disease can be eliminated. Tartar cannot be removed by brushing alone.

Hygienists work from a tailor made prescription from your dentist. To maintain a good standard of oral health between visits to your hygienist it is very important to follow the prevention and maintenance program developed specifically for you to stop or reverse the gum disease. Hygienists also carry out a soft tissue, oral cancer screening to detect any abnormalities.

The frequency of attendance with Rachael, Christina and Janie, our hygienists, is determined by your dentist (in close consultation with your hygienist) based on your personal oral health assessment. In general the better care you take in cleaning your teeth and gums the less often you will need to visit the hygienist, but typically most people benefit from having this treatment every six months.

The most important aspect of your appointment will be the advice our team gives you of the best way to maintain your teeth and gums at home. In this way you will be able to make your mouth healthier and feel fresher on a daily basis.
